AS SEEN IN/SPEAKING LIST
“At 11, I witnessed my grandfather being taken for ransom by an insurgent group in Damascus, but I was grateful we got him back alive.
At 12, I lost the place I once called home, Aleppo, and became an immigrant, but I felt lucky we were allowed in another country.
At 13, I learned that the Syrian rebels stole my father's factory, but I was thankful my father made it out alive.
At 15, I slowly found my way back to a "normal life" where my parents had jobs to support us again.
After turning 17, I was hospitalized with a mystery diagnosis, lost the ability to walk, but I knew I stood a chance to fight.
At 18, I was forced into taking a medical gap year, but I was thrilled to experience education beyond the four walls of a classroom and became obsessed with Sleep.
At 20, not only am I grateful for my experiences, but it led me to start End No Sleep - a nonprofit fighting for Sleep equity. I also got accepted to Columbia University - a school I could only dream of attending one day.
At 22, even tho I’m still navigating this new path, I’m excited for what’s to come.”
